This is an easy lighted rose centerpiece that would look fantastic on your reception tables. It can also look fantastic if you’re planning a dusk wedding and you use these to line the aisle. Here’s how to make it.
What You’ll Need
- Several Plastic Spoons for Each Rose
- 1 Battery Operated Tealight Candle
- Artificial Roses or Rose Petals
- Hot Glue
Start by snapping or cutting the spoon handles off, leaving just a small stem. Next, glue the rose petals to the outside and inside of the spoon. You’ll want to make about 9 or 10 of these for one flower. Glue the stem of the spoon to the tealight candle so that the spoon is up like a rose petal. Do this all the way around the candle – you should have about 4 on the first layer. Then, using the glue and the spoons, create an outer layer of petals by gluing again on top of the ones you’ve already glued.
Create your final layer by gluing the stems to the bottom of the candle so you have an outer layer of petals. Remove any of the glue strings and test it out by turning the candle on. This makes an absolutely beautiful decoration – and you can see step by step instructions with pictures here:
You can use whatever color you’d like, so that the flowers go well with your décor or the flowers you’ve chosen for your centerpieces and bouquets.
